The main focus of your role will be to work with academic researchers, professional colleagues and senior management at the University (including the Pro Vice-Chancellor, Research, Innovation and Enterprise) to support the development of excellent research bids, funding proposals and business cases for external funding of research and innovation projects. You will work with the Research and Innovation Bid Writers to support large scale funding from mainstream UK sources such as UK Research & Innovation (particularly Innovate UK and the Research Councils) but also other public sector sources and major charities (as a non-exclusive list). Your activities will be fully aligned with Cardiff University’s The Way Forward 2018-23 strategy, especially the Research and Innovation sub-strategies. Your work will directly support the achievement of the University’s Key Performance Indicator (KPI) to achieve annual research income of £200M.
Reporting to the Head of Research Funder Relationships, you will be a member of a new unit within the Research Development team in Research and Innovation Services. The Research Funder Relationship Unit will provide critical, underpinning operational support to ensure that Cardiff’s research community is fully engaged with opportunities arising from the rapidly evolving research funding landscape. You will provide support for professional, responsive bid writing for a range of interdisciplinary science areas (for example, Data Science & Artificial Intelligence, Precision Medicine, Advanced Manufacturing & Materials, Sustainable Energy, Climate Science and the Creative Economy) working collaboratively with academics at Cardiff University, businesses, public sector and regional partners. You will be employed as a member of the Research Development team and your work location will be flexible in order to liaise with and support relevant members of academic staff.
The expectation is that the post holder will predominantly be based at Cardiff University, however, there will be a requirement to undertake UK travel.
This is a full-time, open-ended post.
